Fox editorialist Glenn Beck joked on Thursday night that his effigy of the Speaker of the House should drink a deadly cocktail of wine and poison that he personally prepared.
"I really just really wanted to thank you having me over here to Wine Country, you know, to be invited -- I thought I had to be a major Democratic donor, or a longtime friend of yours, which I'm not," Beck said to an actress wearing a paper cutout of Pelosi's face.
After demanding that she drink a glass of wine, he riffed: "By the way, I put poison in your — no ..."
"Glenn Beck talking about poisoning the speaker of the House is just the latest in a series of actions, statements, and stunts that have no place on a credible news network," said Eric Burns, president of watchdog group Media Matters, in a Friday press release. "Beck himself said that it is our 'patriotic duty' to stop someone who talks about turning violent. Doesn't he deserve to be held to this same standard?"
The group is calling of Fox to fire Beck over his "racially charged, violent rhetoric," and released a series of clips illustrating why they feel he need to be taken off the national cable news network.

While I wouldn't be the least bit saddened if she did get poisoned...
I would also not be the least bit saddened if he got kicked off the air.
They are both trying everything they can to divide America.
Tough decision lol.

A free society is one where it is safe to be unpopular.
The only way to get rid of corruption in high places is to get rid of high places.
Anybody going slower than you is an idiot, and anyone going faster than you is a maniac.
Some have morals, some don't, most simply ignore them.
A candidate is a person who gets money from the rich and votes from the poor to protect them from each other.
